Carroll moved from the U.S. to Toronto after working in theater production and found his greatest success as a CBC-TV series actor. More recently, he had moved to Huntsville, Ontario to be near his daughter. From Edmiston’s piece:
Carroll fell in with the town’s fledgling community radio station.
In 2010, he signed on just to do the afternoon show, but soon became a driving force — taking on other shows and helping Hunters Bay Radio grow from an online operation in the basement of a house into a 60-person FM radio station covering much of Ontario’s Muskoka cottage country.
Carroll, who battled cancer, was listening to Hunters Bay Radio during his final moments at a local hospice. The sequence of on-air events that sent him off is both sad and perfect. There’s a nice video tribute in the Post piece, as well. Carroll was 60. RIP.
